When is it necessary to start a new period in the periodic table?

Periods in the periodic table represent the number of electron shells necessary to fit all of the electrons. Once you fill the valence shell of an atom, the next electron must go in a new electron shell. This would constitute a new period on the periodic table.


In terms of electrons why are neon and helium in the same periodic table group?

Neon and Helium are both noble gases, their electrons completely fill the shells available to them.


What is the answer key to the periodic table fill in the blanks?

There are no blanks to be filled!


Does noble gases fill more that one column of the periodic table?

No. The noble gasses take up a single column of the periodic table


Where do the d orbitals fill on the periodic table?

From period 4 and below, the d orbitals start to fill.


Explain how information about an element's physical state at room temperature will help you fill in the partial periodic table?

Explain how information about an element's physical state at room temperature will help you fill in the partial periodic table.


The importance of periodic table-of-elements?

u can easily apply the knowledge of periodic table say, atomic weights, atomic numbers, no. of protons or electrons, no. of neutrons, many more to fill the s,p,d,f shells, to identify an element when it's group or period number is given through 2,8,8,18,18,32 method


Why do elements in the same group on the periodic table have similar chemical properties?

Electrons in the same group on the periodic table require the same number of electrons to fill their valence shells. Because of this, as you move down the group (column), all electrons will have the same number of valence electrons.Because they have similar electron configurationsex: the nobel gasses always have 8 valence electrons on their outer shells and, thus, have similar chemical properties


Where are atoms with fuller electron shells located on the periodic table?

If by 'fuller' you mean a larger number of electrons or a larger number of shells then theoretically the closer to the bottom and right of the the table the 'fuller' the atom would be. However because the periodic table doesn't tell you the number of electrons simply the number of protons and because atoms of the same ilk can vary largely due to a massive number of variables this would be more representative of possible 'fullness'. If by 'fuller' you mean the material as whole that tends to fill it's potential for electrons(and therefore shells) it would be the noble gasses(far right hand side radon and up) because they are the most stable. If you meant 'Where are atoms with fuller electron shells located on MY PARTICULAR COPY of the periodic table" I don't know. That thing has like a quintillion atoms, I would guess somewhere around ununbium.


What halogen element has the most electron shells?

Basically, the more electrons that are present in an atom, the more elctron shells it will have. Look at a periodic table and you'll see Astatine has a proton number of 85 (85 protons), as the number of electrons and protons is equal, we can therefore deduce that it has 85 electrons and is the largest halogen atom. Therefore astatine MUST have the most electron shells as it has more electrons to fill them. Basically, the more electrons that are present in an atom, the more elctron shells it will have.

Why did the first periodic table have empty spaces?

It was recognized by the inventor of the Periodic table that these empty spaces are for elements/isotopes that would be discovered someday. Dmitri Mendeleev is generally credited with the publication, in 1869, of the first widely recognized periodic table. He developed his table to illustrate periodic trends in the properties of the then-known elements. Mendeleev also predicted some properties of then-unknown elements that would be expected to fill gaps in this table.


Why is He over Ne in the periodic table?

The number of protons in the nucleus increases as you go to the right or go down in the periodic table. Elements of the same period exhibit common characteristics and are placed in the same column. In this case, both helium (He) and neon (Ne) are "noble gases", i.e. they have full electron shells and are extremely unreactive; noble gases do not even form diatomic molecules like some of their neighbors in the periodic chart like oxygen and chlorine. The first electron shell to fill is the 1s shell, which fills with 2 electrons. Helium, with two protons in its nucleus is the first element to have a full shell. It thus sits at the top of the table. The next orbitals to fill are the 2s and 2p which require 2 and 6 electrons respectively. Neon, with 10 protons in its shell is the first element to fill both these shells and this sits immediately below helium in the table.


What did mendeleev predict about the gaps in his periodic table?

He predicted that elements with the predicted properties would be discovered to fill in these gaps.


Why are potassium and iron in the same row on the periodic table?

The periodic table is laid out in rows to illustrate recurring (periodic) trends in the chemical behaviour of the elements as their atomic number increases: a new row is begun when chemical behaviour begins to repeat, meaning that elements with similar behaviour fall into the same vertical columns. The fourth period contains 18 elements, beginning with potassium and ending with krypton. Iron is also in Period (row) 4. As a rule, period 4 elements fill their 4s shells first, then their 3d and 4p shells, in that order, however there are exceptions, such as chromium.


How can an atoms electron configuration be predicted on the basis of its location in the periodic table?

The number of electrons in the outer shell is the group number. Going to the left on the periodic table they gain more electrons and fill up by the time it reaches Group 8.


What is the modern name for ekasilicon?

Ekasilicon is germanium['eka' is Sanskrit language for: 'first' place down under Si)Germanium was isolated in 1886, and provided the best confirmed prediction of Mendeleev's periodic table, which was built up before the discovery of Ge.(Professor Dmitri Mendeleev published the first Periodic Table of the Atomic Elements in 1869).When he proposed his periodic table, he noted some gaps in the table, and predicted that as-of-yet unknown elements existed with properties appropriate to fill those gaps.


Can nonmetals gain electrons to fill their valence shells?

Yes, nonmetals generally gain electrons to fill valence shells.


What subshell block that begins to fill after 4S2?

The subshell blocks that make up the periodic table are s, p, d and f. The subshell block that begins to fill after 4s2 is 3d.


How do you create periodic table using HTML?

You can use CSS to define elements and place those elements in a table configuration. The other option would be to create an HTML table. Fill the table cells with the data and leave cells blank to display the spaced on the table that do not include elements. You can see a periodic table HTML code by going to chemicool dot com and viewing the source.

How has the periodic table contributed to scientific knowledge of the elements?

The periodic table, at the time of its invention, included spaces for elements to be discovered. One could say this spurred scientists on to fill the gaps. Most prominently, the table allowed scientists to notice the patterns in elements that ultimately contributed in the discovery of new elements and the structure of atoms.


Why is group 18 on the periodic table a nonreactive group?

Elements of group 18, the noble gasses, have full valence shells, which means they have all the electrons they need to fill the outermost shell. Because of this they are not inclined to either give up or take in electrons and are therefore stable. Stable elements are unlikely to react.


How many electrons does it take to fill an outer energy level?

8 until you go lower down on the periodic table. (past period 3)


What is the periodic table?

A periodic table is a tabular display of the chemical elements, organized on the basis of their atomic numbers, electron configurations, and recurring chemical properties. Elements are presented in order of increasing atomic number. The periodic table is a table of the chemical elements, often showing the symbols for the elements, their full names, their atomic numbers and their mass number. It organizes them into groups and periods (columns and rows) based on their structure and properties. It is called "the periodic table" because the properties of the elements repeat in a periodic fashion (i.e. every so often) throughout the list. Dmitri Mendeleev is credited with making the first periodic table, though the work of many others went towards the idea. Mendeleev's periodic table is so ingenious because he predicted unknown elements that were expected to fill gaps. They were all proved correct.


Does the electrons go on the shells?

Yes electrons go on shells , that's the way the are organize . The more shells they fill the greater their atomic number .
